Mrs. Lincoln’s Dressmaker

"Chiaverini has drawn a loving portrait of a complex and gifted woman," the St. Louis Post-Dispatch praises in an interview that ran in Sunday's edition. Elizabeth Keckley lived and worked as a slave in the Hugh Garland household in St. Louis from 1847-1855, and she continued to reside there from the time she bought her freedom in 1855 until she moved to Washington, D. C. in 1860.

Looks good I want to recommend it as the next book for the book club that I am at. Hopefully one day they will make a movie out of it so I can compare the book with the movie.
